Hi guys, is there a safe way of cleaning the speaker grill? Mine us full of dust and it has started bothering me.

Any idea? How do you clean it?

Best regards

Either blow in it. Or shoot it with compressed air.

You could take a small shop vac and put i up against the grill to suck out the garbage, or if you want, even better, take apart your N5 and clean it out that way with compressed air and a shop vac. Pretty simple to open up a N5 if you have the right tools:

I know it says for Iphone, but the guitar pic type tool works best on the N5:

Of you can use your fingers, this video makes me cringe but you could do it this way:
